Wave Soon to be owner - 147 or GT JTDm


After driving Japanese cars for the past 6 years (Two versions of the Celica, a GT-Four, and the Japanese version of the T-Sport) I've now signed my more current Celica over to the GF (as she loves driving it) and now on the hunt for my next car, which will hopefully be a bit more comfy to drive! The Celicas driving position isn't the most comfy I've found.

So currently now on the hunt for a 147 Q2 JTDm, as believe these have the LSD, and cruise control? as well as a slightly more powerful version of the engine?

Also spotted the Ducatti version of the car, apart from some trim and a badge, is there any other difference? Does the 'Sport' Button with its extra 20bhp make any noticeable difference?

Last question (for the time being) whats peoples real world MPG for these cars? Most the time it will be used for the daily commute of about 20miles, but will on occasion make the trip from Northants to Cornwall, where the rest of my family live

Cheers in advance, and hopefully my transition from Japanese cars to Italian will be a good one!

EDIT: Might also be on the lookout for a GT, did these ever come with a LSD as standard?
